A pretty old project, 201 Folsom St, is coming out of the woodwork today to get its construction entitlement extended. The project, not unlike much of Rincon Hill in its modern heyday, consists of two residential towers, 350 and 400 feet above an 80-foot podium. It'll have a total of up to 725 units, plus commercial space below. 'Course, it was no small feat that developer Tishman Speyer was able to finish and top off its second tower at the Infinity (see: One Rincon Hill)— and as their reps themselves said, it'll be a good several years before another comparable project will come to market. At least. So it should be no surprise that the neighboring block to the west should be seeking a little bit of a break. Let's see if they'll get it, terms intact, as neighborhood peeps speak out against what they see as parking space overload and "special" zoning. So then, what to do about this empty lot?
